Weekly Update #86

  • Peercoin v0.4 release is now in the upgrade window. Upgrade deadline is May 4th. Please visit peercointalk forum for more information and instructions: http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2473.0
  • Alert message has been sent to all v0.3 peercoin clients.
  • Recently there have been multiple GPU mining development for Primecoin. Primecoin is designed to be a powerful network for scientific computing and the first to bring such technology to cryptocurrency world. It's expected Primecoin network would migrate to GPU mining and ASIC mining just like Bitcoin did. Prime algorithm hardwares are important contribution to computation technology in general. We certainly welcome such development. In the next primecoin release, the proposed v0.2 protocol would be readied on testnet so mining developers could test against v0.2 protocol to ensure future compatibility.

Have fun!

Weekly Update #87

  • Reminder that Peercoin v0.4 upgrade deadline is May 4th. Please upgrade your peercoin client within next two weeks.
  • We are trying to confirm with major service providers about their upgrade schedule/status. If you are a service provider, you are welcome to confirm with me at sunnyking9999@gmail.com, or post to the forum thread: http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2473.0

Have fun!

Weekly Update #88

  • Reminder that Peercoin v0.4 upgrade deadline is May 4th. Please upgrade your peercoin client within the week. It is recommended to upgrade as soon as possible, at least before Sunday May 4th 2014 14:00 UTC. Late upgrade would require manual procedure to redownload blockchain, possibly even more manual procedures such as wallet repair, key export/import etc. should wallet discrepancy occurs due to running on a forked v0.3 blockchain.
  • Our community team is contacting peercoin service providers to confirm their upgrade to v0.4, to ensure timely upgrade from the service providers without service disruption. If you are a service provider please feel free to post confirmation message to the relevant discussion at http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2721.0
  • Due to numerous new service providers emerging in the industry, we feel that extra step is needed to further protect service providers in case they miss the upgrade deadline. On May 5th around the protocol switch time, another alert message is planned to be sent to all v0.3 clients, while triggering safe mode on all v0.3 clients. This means v0.3 clients would stop sending transactions by default, unless overridden manually by configuration setting 'safemode=0'.

Have fun!

Weekly Update #89

  • Peercoin network has been upgraded to v0.4 protocol.
  • If you haven't yet upgraded the client, please do so as soon as possible. Instructions at http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2473.0
  • v0.3 clients would reach end of support within two weeks. v0.3 clients would fork blockchain from the main network (v0.4) in about 20 days. This means nodes that continue running v0.3 clients would no longer operate properly with the main network.

Have fun!

Weekly Update #91

  • If you haven't upgraded peercoin client to v0.4 please do so as soon as possible. v0.3 client would be desupported on May 24th, and another alert message would be sent to all v0.3 clients to trigger safe mode, to prevent unnecessary losses for unaware users.
  • Primecoin difficulty is now approaching 11! As of today difficulty is around 10.96. It means primecoin network has been gaining computation power vastly in the last couple weeks, likely due to the transition from cpu mining to gpu mining.

Have fun!

Weekly Update #92

  • If you haven't upgraded peercoin client to v0.4 please do so as soon as possible. v0.3 client has reached end of support. v0.3 client shouldn't be used any more, if you continue to use v0.3 it would run on a forked blockchain from the main peercoin network.
  • Primecoin now has a test switch against proposed v0.2 mining protocol. Miner developers (fpga and gpu especially) and pool operators please test with this new switch -v2compatible for future compatibility (http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2858.0).
  • My interview last week at peercointalk with transcript here: http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2862.0

Weekly Update #95

  • Peerunity v0.1.0 has been released by the peerunity dev team. See announcement thread: http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=2902.0
  • Based on the consensus of project leaders of the community, I am happy to announce that sigmike is now sharing responsibility with me in the Peercoin core-dev team. Responsibility of core-dev team is maintenance and development of peercoin protocol and reference client implementation. sigmike has been a key member of the peershare project and peerunity project, who has also demonstrated exceptional knowledge of peercoin protocol and security.
  • There are many more talented developers/contributors in the community project teams, so we are continuing to evaluate and seek recommendations. Some of the key members are focusing on the respective project currently but could be joining the core-dev team at a later date. It's very nice to see the growth of peercoin dev community and the quality work being produced.

Have fun!

Weekly Update #98

  • Congratulations to the primecoin network reaching one year old! I would like to show appreciation to primecoin users and especially miner developers, without whose tireless work we wouldn't be able to claim 5(!) of the simultaneous primes world records out of a total of 21 world records (https://github.com/primecoin/primecoin/wiki/World-records) (http://primerecords.dk/simultprime.htm), within the first year of its running. This is a feat that I couldn't have imagined at the time of primecoin's design, when I was still in doubt whether it could break any world record or not. One year after primecoin's public debut, the cryptocurrency designers are still focused on mixing hash functions with hash-cash proof-of-work, or finding ever more 'cpu friendly' proof-of-work, primecoin's unique proof-of-work remains the first and one of the very few useful and actually interesting proof-of-work designs, that preserves the decentralization property of cryptocurrency.
  • So happy birthday Primecoin  Smiley

Have fun!

Weekly Update #103

  • I am happy to see peerchemist's Fazon initiative (http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=3246.0), a very good step toward better organization of community development and sharing of resources. If you don't know, peerchemist is also the lead developer for the excellent peerbox project (http://peer4commit.com/projects/92).
  • Given recent market loss in altcoins, I would like to remind investors in peercoin and primecoin projects to be always aware of market risks, i.e. only invest with what you can afford to lose.
  • Our development community has grown quite a bit compared to last year, thanks to the tireless and selfless  teamwork of many of you. I am amazed at what our community has achieved, and honored to express my appreciation for all your great works!

Have fun!

Weekly Update #105

  • As a first project of our data services initiative, we are working on a web wallet support service. The core team will look into providing a reference brain wallet implementation in client side javascript, with combined peercoin/primecoin support. More full-featured wallet app can be developed by community further with API support of full nodes.

Have fun!
